Hit in the lower left back of skull w/the tip of a paddle board. No visible bump but developing headaches 3 days later. Pupils look ok, but i bruise easily. Should i be worried about bleeding in skull?

2 yo chasing bro today. Tripped & hit forehead on wood stair. Some bruising & small dent if you push it. Acting normal all day. Poss skull fracture?
Possible: If you think that you can identify an area of the skull that moves with pressure on it then a skull fracture is very possible, and a depressed skull fracture becomes a possibility and may need fixation. It is difficult to tell if there is swelling of the skin and soft tissue that can be depressed though. In general this can be cleared up pretty easily in you closest emergency room with an x-ray. ...Read more
A bit more than that: A serious blow to the temple that results in a skull fracture can lacerate the middle meningeal artery and cause an epidural hematoma. This is a neurosurgical emergency that must be evaluated and treated promptly or a person can slip into a coma and die. A slower subdural hematoma can cause issues as well. Any head trauma with changes in mental status should be evaluated promptly. ...Read more
I've just found a a spot on the back of my head that whenever i happen to find it hurts like i've bruised it but it's not a bump or visible.
See an osteopathic doctor: It may be difficult to determine why this is happening unless it is physically examined by an osteopathic physician. They may find that there are certain structures on the skull that may be more tender than others that may be on a suture line, or edge of a bony prominence on the skull.

If you have been hit in the head and the inside of the ears are purple, you may actually have a skull fracture. There are many other things your doctor can look for that may indicate fractures/bleeding and given the symptoms you have, I'd get it checked out. ...Read more
Last night car trunk hit my head I have no bruise/bump. Later my ear felt like h2o draining. Now it hurts w/pressure. What to do? Should I be worried?
Local trauma: If the trunk banging on head didn't leave any bruise or bump, it is unlikely that it was severe enough to cause any internal damage. You may have some fluid build up in your ears from previous allergies etc. that was exacerbated by the trauma last night. You may use OTC pain/anti inflammatory agent like Ibuprofen. If symptoms persist, get it checked with your doctor or Urgent care. Feel good. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
